    FOREWORD ASME Standards Committee B89 on Dimensional Metrology, under procedures approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), prepares standards that encompass the inspection and the means of measuring characteristics of such various geometric parameters as diameter, length, flatness, parallelism, concentricity, and squareness. Because steel measuring tapes are widely used for the measurement and comparison of some of these features, the Chair of the B89 Division 1 Length authorized the formation of Project Team B89.1.7 to prepare this Standard The overall scope of the Dimensional Metrology Measuring Tape Project Team (B89.1.7) is: "To define the requirements for steel measuring tapes for all units of measures in U.S. Customary units and SI1 units with respect to graduations, numbering, designations, and accuracy." This standard provides guidance to users and manufacturers of steel measuring tapes with respect to quality standards and preferred measuring units by specifying only the requirements that are essential for satisfactory performance. Presently, both the metric and the U.S. Customary System (inch-based) graduations are in popular use. Non-mandatory Appendices A and B discuss Tape Calibration Uncertainties and provide general guidance and awareness regarding the determination and application of calibration uncertainties relative to tape calibrations. Appendix A treats the subject of calibration of a tape by comparison to a master tape; Appendix B discusses calibration of a tape using a laser interferometer. Drafts of this standard were proposed and discussed during project team meetings from January 1996 through October 2008. The American National Standards Institute approved this standard on ____________. Suggestions for improvement of this standard would be welcome. They should be sent to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), United Engineering Center, 345 East 47th Street, New York, NY 10017-2392.

    1Le Systeme International d'Unites (International System of Units), abbreviated SI in all languages, commonly called the metric system.
